Was your slide on cables attached to the roof, or was it on rails on the bottom of the slide. The reason I ask is that I have a FR 21 WRS V-Lite with the rear slide. Any info is appreciated. Glad everyone is OK.

I always wondered if this could ever happen but never actually heard/seen it.

Scary!

Very sorry that happened! We owned a 21rs before we got our 25rs. The bed on the new one is a king so there's even more weight. Makes you wonder if an external support to the bumper might be needed like pop-up. Hope F R helps you, would be criminal not to.

I agree with many comments here. I guess a recall is totally out of the question.

A recall? This is hardly a common problem.

I agree; they would need to determine why it happened and then see if it is a "one off" or a manufacturing/training issue before a "fix" can be found (if needed) and implemented via recall.

Way too early to think in that direction.

Not what I wanted to hear. Thanks. If you don't mind, send me a pm and let me know what they find and do about it. I don't know about you, but I really like this unit. It has been a perfect fit for me and the wife.

Whoa, Nellie!!! First and foremost, I'm glad no one was injured!! Have seen slides that popped out because of poorly adjusted/malfunctioning extenders. This is a new one on me. Hope you can get this resolved with Forest River. Looks like Bob is the guy who can move things forward for you!!
